Matemo Island Resort, Quirimbas

Situated in the magnificent Quirimbas Archipelago off the coast of Northern Mozambique, the remote Island of Matemo offers idyllic Mozambique island accommodation. Matemo Island Resort offers unspoilt beauty, breathtaking scenery, spectacular marine life and extreme relaxation - perfect for a beach honeymoon or relaxing after a safari holiday in South Africa or Tanzania.

These idyllic islands stretch from the quaint city of Pemba in the south to the town of Palma in the north. The impressive 1,500km2 marine area of Quirimbas National Park includes 11 coral islands stretching for 100km. These islands feature phenomenal vertical drop-offs, some up to 400 meters. These walls are abundant with coral covered caves and tropical fish ranging from gobies to mammoth Napoleon Wrasse and game fish including Kingfish and Spanish Mackerel. Feeding and nesting grounds for the park�s population of sea turtles, dugong, dolphins, sharks and whales are also found here.

The Quirimbas have enormous cultural and historical value, with a combination of Arabian, Portuguese, and African influences. The magnificent old fortresses on Ibo Island boast intriguing historical and fascinating sites. With mangroves, coral and palms, this island tells a story of slaves, pirates and ivory.

The Matemo Resort accommodation consists of a total of 24 thatched chalets with en-suite bathrooms fitted with indoor shower and separate bath as well as a private outdoor shower, and are just steps away from the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.

All chalets are beautifully furnished and are equipped with air conditioning, outdoor hammock, ceiling fans, fully mosquito screened, hair dryer, mini bar, personal electronic safe, satellite TV and the convenience of tea/coffee making facilities.
